Thursday we left Lynchburg to go to Raleigh for a family get together. My brother Nolan was in town for the week from TX, who I haven't seen since last year! He also brought his girlfriend Jen with him for us all to meet. My mom had planned for us all to get together at our church gym where we ate some yummy food and played basketball. We brought Jayden's walker and Ethan's basketball goal so that he could join in on the fun. We all had a great time and it was so good to see everyone again.
The next day, Ish and I took the boys to Marbles Kids Museum. Apparently Friday is the day for all the schools to do their field trips! It was insane! Because there was so much to do and so many kids around, Ethan wasn't able to really focus on a whole lot. He was a little standoffish because of the older kids but he did manage to find the train table and that's where he wanted to spend all of his time. we had to pull him away just so he could enjoy some of the other things that the museum had to offer. Thankfully after we ate lunch we were able to enjoy some things a little more b/c the crowds had either left or were eating outside. Overall we had a great experience and who liked to take them there again sometime. But I think we'll try it during the week instead and hopefully it won't be so crowded.
Once we came home we "tried" to lay the boys down for a much needed nap. But b/c they aren't in their beds the naps weren't so successful. However, I did manage to run out and get a much needed new cell phone. That basically just made my day lol. That evening Ish and I met with some friends for an oyster roast and ate some yummy grilled shrimp and oysters, played some corn hole and goofed off.
Saturday morning we spent our time packing and loading up the car to head back to the Burg. The car ride was challenging at times so we were so glad to get home! Later that afternoon we went to a kids birthday party, went to friends house for dinner and then put the kids to bed. What a weekend! The boys were so exhausted and soo glad to be in their own beds.
